Seekonk Road Trip Returns to Action on Speed51 Thursday

SEEKONK, Mass. — Seekonk Speedway returns to action on Thursday, virtually, for the second race of the iRacing Road Trip Tour at Southern National Motorsports Park. It’s the second of eight stops in the series and will air live on Speed51.com’s website and through their Facebook page. Racing begins with the feature at 7:30 p.m., while all qualifying will be completed a day prior.

 

In the opener, real-life spotter Brandon Wilkinson held off Richard Regan Jr. and Ryan Doucette to score the win. All three will be in the field and are seen as favorites to score the checkered at Southern National. Forty-two drivers will be aiming to make the maximum 26-car starting field.

 

Former Seekonk track champions entered include Ryan Kuhn (Late Models, 2018), Richie Murray (Sport Trucks, 2019), Evan Marchand (SYRA), Chase Belcher (Sport Trucks), Dylan Estrella (Late Models, twice) and Jake Matheson (Legends Cars). The star-filled list of Seekonk regulars, and crew members, includes names like Derek Gluchacki, Jake Johnson, Ryan Vanasse Jr., Tyler Tomassi, Jake Vanada, Brittany Campbell and more. The full list is available at the bottom of the story.
